  1. Anyone have any personal experience completing this residency, or know another PA that has? I'm Interested in applying, but wanted more information. I know that OB/GYN is one of the smaller specialities, and I've hit a brick wall looking for info online.
  2. Hello! As I come closer to making some tough decisions regarding programs, I am hoping to gather information and opinions from current students from the above programs or perhaps students who have interviewed at a combination of the above programs. More specifically, I am wanting to know if any students, interviewees, or alumni would be willing to share their personal experiences regarding 1) best and strongest aspects of the program 2) aspects that could be improved upon 3) level of support from faculty/program resources and 4) anything you were surprised about after matriculating into the program. I’d also like to know about any goofy things (location, parking, student perks) that you’d consider a plus or minus about the program. I have interviewed and been accepted into two of these programs and interview at the third fairly soon. I really love each for different reasons...proximity to spouse, culture of the area, resources, etc., but find that having interviewed with so many programs back-to-back, I wish I would have conversed with current students during the interview day more extensively (interview and travel fatigue... ) Anyhow, I would appreciate any and all comments. Thanks!
  3. Hi, I'm a first time applicant and I will be applying this next rotation in 2017. My first choice would be to go to UW MEDEX and I'm wondering what my chances are. Undergrad: Oregon State University; Major: BioHealth Sciences, all of my pre-reqs are met through my major. Minor in psychology. Overall GPA: 3.5; Science GPA: 3.52 HCE: I'm an uncertified paid medical assistant in a ear, nose, throat and allergy clinic. My duties are broad and can go from giving allergy shots, assisting the doctor in procedures, taking vitals and medical histories, translating for spanish speaking patients to finishing patient's charts and sending medications. My hours by the application deadline will be 2000. Volunteering: My volunteer experience mainly consists of volunteering at a free medical clinic in my town. I volunteer as a medical assistant, translator for spanish speaking patients, and receptionist. I volunteer at this clinic about three times a month. ~108 hours a year. GRE: 150 Verbal, 154 Quantitative, 4 Analytical Letters of Rec: 1) The doctor I work for. 2) My anatomy and physiology professor at OSU. 3) The dean of pharmacology at OHSU (my previous boss) I'm 22 and I am an Oregon resident. I have a history of working as a student researcher at OHSU. I also had some other questions along with my chances of getting into UW MEDEX. 1) How much does the GRE matter for UW MEDEX? 2) How much does it matter being a non-Washington resident applying to UW MEDEX? 3) I'm also applying to OHSU, Pacific, and was wondering about my chances there as well. Thanks
  4. Does anyone know of a place where we can just look through different schools First Time Takers PANCE Pass Rates? I know you can go to each school and see there, but is there a NCCPA type website that just has all of that information in one place?
  5. OHSU is my top choice, but I'm concerned that I won't stack up for an interview if the all the accepted students fit in the "average GPA" posted online. Could some of the people invited for an interview/accepted give me an idea if there is a range here, and let me know if they think I have a shot. I'm applying the 2012-2013 cycle, currently working on a BS with a 3.3 GPA, 3.1 science, with 85 science credits so far. I took the new GRE and it translates to an 1170-1190 from the old one, 4.5 writing portion. I was in the army as a medic for four years with a 15 month deployment where I earned a combat medical badge and a bronze star medal for action. I will be finishing my Bachelors degree in a total of 2 and 3/4 years, which is surely why my GPA suffered, but wanted to get done under the GI Bill. I probably should have slowed down and taken the loans. I have years of volunteering in high school with a Search and Rescue team as well as various other activities including being a founder/president of a club, currently volunteer at a free medical clinic (9 months so far) but only get about 6 hours a month since it's a college town and everyone wants hours. I did a weeklong medical mission in Honduras through Global Medical Brigades. I am pretty sure I will have a good essay as I am typically a much better writer than science student, and am having an excellent writer edit for me. My EMT-B from the army days is expired, so I won't be able to include that certificate on my CASPA application, as far as I know. Thanks in advance to anyone who wants to give me some input.
  6. when did everyone start applying? anyone applying who did not get in last year?

    I took my PANRE Wednesday the 31st and had my score Friday the 2nd. That was a real surprise. And a relief, I PASSED. I can honestly say I studied for over 3 months.... more seriously the last month. I took every practice sxam I could find and focused on the areas I was weak in. I used the Harrison's to review as well as the First Aid for the Family Medicine Boards. I also used the Family Practice Examination and Board Review book. I had not even looked at the O'Connell and Zarbock review book until I found this website and read other posts. I then overnighted the book from Amazon and took the pretest and post test. I then listed all the information on my I-phone note pad and reviewed it every chance I could get. I passed by a good margin, it was my highest score yet.
